“ Brand: MAM / Type: Baby Bottles „
I stumbled across these bottles in Mothercare and they caught my eye. Much nice looking then the Tomme Tippee ones that we had been using. I wanted something that was bright and colourfull and would not fade. We sterilise in Milton tablets and find that with some bottles it can fade them easily. I need not have worried with MAM bottles. We have had them now for over 3 months and they still look brand new.
The teat took my son a good day to get used to as it is angled slightly and not a round shape. But he soon got the hang of it. They are easier to wash then the anti-colic version as they have less parts to them. I like that MAM have bottle handles that can slide onto the bottle so that my son can learn to feed himself.
My only niggle with the bottles that sometimes it can be difficult to remove the lid. But other then that i am very happy with my purchase.
This is a review of the baby bottles I am using at the moment, finding our daughter was chewing the teats on her regular bottles, we struggled with the other styles of bottles but the teats on these bottles are a different shape and seem thicker, holding up well and definitely less chewing going on.
The bottles hold 330ml of liquid which is impressive, our daughter drinks loads so we always struggle when out for the day without buying more drinks for her and decanting them in to her bottle.
These bottles are definitely a later stage bottle as they can be quite heavy when full of liquid and they have no handles. Our daughter handles them fine but I think she would have struggled before the age of one. The bottles state they are suitable for 4 months.
The bottles are fitted with fast flow teats so the drink comes out quickly but they don't drip thank goodness.
My favourite part of these bottles which we have in pink is the cute Russian dolls pattern (which my husband thought were snowmen at first!). You can also get the bottles in blue with a more appropriate design. The bottles have little lid which can be a bit difficult to remove as it requires two strong thumbs to flip them off. Definitely not one our 20 month daughter has mastered yet!
The bottles are quite tall so may not fit in some sterilising units. We only use ours for juice and water so don't sterilise them but give them a good wash with soapy water and a bottle brush.
The bottles are BPA free which is important when it comes to baby bottles and hold 330 ml of liquid when full.
A pack of three identical bottles costs just over £17 with free P&P on Amazon. Sounds a lot but I have tried cheaper and now appreciate the quality of these bottles.
I think these bottles are brilliant although I may have had other thoughts if I had tried them too soon with our daughter. I think they are fine for confident and thirsty kids but not for little babies to hold. There are better styles out there for younger kids but no bottles last forever so if you are looking to renew I would consider this style. The teat is also a different shape so this is worth considering if you are having problems with other styles of teats.
Our daughter is definitely not ready for a cup yet as she tips it all over herself when she tries to sip our drinks (like tepid tea!) so she needs some kind of spout. She is not a fan of straws, doesn't mind the sports style bottles but chews the teats on rubber bottles and tips out the drink if they drip at all. This seems to be the current solution for her and if she finds a way to abuse this bottle we shall save them for DD no 2 who is on her way in November.
